Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

XMMS and web browsing-- but not together
I can't listen to CDs via XMMS and browse the web at the same time. Basically, whenever I have a CD in either drive, my web browsers can't connect or download any pages. Take the CD out, I'm fine. I can listen to music I ripped onto my hard drive and browse, just no CD.
I have played with the buffers and cache in both my browser and XMMS. No luck.
It shouldn't be a hardware problem: ASUS p4p800 mobo (built in sound card) P4 2.4 GHZ, CD RW, DVD, 512 MB Crucial Memory (3200 DDR), 480 Thermaltake PSU, 2 X 120 GB Harddrives Radeon 9600 Pro.
This is a recent thing... as I just updated to SuSE 9 yesterday.
What were you using before SuSE 9, and what kind of modem are you using?
My first reaction was a design flaw in the motherboard (CD audio connection conflicts with winmodem), but I don't really know enough about it. Maybe a driver confilct with the same problem - or does that only happen on Winbloze?
Get your terms right. It's either PC3200 or DDR400. You can't mix and match.
I use ALSA - and have just successfully recompiled the drivers on two machines and tested one without rebooting but the other I'm using for the net so I won't yet - and wvdial. I'm very happy with both of them, and have never had any trouble with them (except when I thought it would be a good idea to install yiff, nas, rsound, esound, oss, alsa, arts and a few other servers at the same time, all of them independent - not like arts going through ALSA. I have learnt from my errors, and am now a pious ALSA user. No more soundserver conflicts!).
Glad to see that you've fixed it - and in just under an hour (since your first post)! I've never heard of a CD being used as a mixer though...
